This is no way endorsed by Canva or an Ad. I just really like the website and believe it is easy to navigate with lots of FREE options for those not so confident in the graphic design area. I personally use Canva to create Instagram stories, square posts and colourful layouts. The small business world isn't a competition and social media tools are not a secret so I am happy to share and advise when and where I can🙂
Supporting Small Businesses Is Cool
I have had a zillion and one ideas on how to connect Loved by Millie with you lovely lot and how we can shout about the small business movement together. I have been working with the absolute babe Elenor Rose Storrs who I have worked with since the start of my Loved by Millie journey. Elenor Rose Storrs created my logo so I recently set her a little mission to create me a super duper illustration to reflect all the makers and shakers. I am currently working on some cool things with supporting indies at the heart of it all, this is a working progress but I am really excited to connect with you all on a more personal level. If you would like to share this little illustration please give credit/tag using @lovedbymilliex and @elenorrosestorrs.
Thank you for reading and catch you on Novembers newsletter lovelies!
Remember, If you fancy featuring on the Loved by Millie newsletter it’s super easy to get involved - drop me an email before 15th October and we can create something wonderful together...
